There have been rumors circulating that J. Cole is considering retirement after The Fall Off, and he doesn’t outwardly say it’s true during the documentary, but he does allude to having thoughts about the end of his career. When discussing his motives for creating The Off Season at the beginning of the doc, he says, “One more time before I leave—before I feel like I’m fulfilled in this game—let me try to reach new heights from a skill level standpoint.” Elsewhere, he hints at life after music, saying, “Now that the possibility of not doing this shit this seems real and I’m at peace with that, don’t have a regret.”
